The official weigh-in event for tomorrow night's (August 24, 2012) Bellator 73 fight card took place today (August 23, 2012) at 6 p.m. ET from Harrah's Tunica Hotel and Casino in Tunica, Mississippi.
Of the 20 fighters who stepped on the scale, 19 of them made weight. Only undercard middleweight prospect Kelvin Tiller missed weight, coming in at a whopping 190.2. It's unlikely he'll be able to drop 4.2 pounds in two hours.
Headlining the main event of Bellator 73 will be the Bellator Summer Series Light Heavyweight tournament finale between veteran Travis Wiuff and European standout Attila Vegh. Both men will be vying for $100,000 and a shot at current Bellator Light Heavyweight champion Christian M'Pumbu (who Wiuff already defeated via decision in a "superfight" last year).
Also on tap is the continuation Bellator season six bantamweight finals between Brazilians Marcos Galvao and Luis Nogueira. Originally intended to take place, the fight was delayed due to injury. The winner has already been penciled in to fight reigning Bellator 135 pound champion Eduardo Dantas this upcoming November.
Lastly, opening up the card will be a heavyweight attraction as Ryan Martinez and The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 10 veteran Mike Wessel expect to slug it out for a potential heavyweight tournament qualifier.
